Severely off topic, but . . .

I don't think I ever noticed that there is an "OldHP" and an "Old HP" before.

Me either.

I got them confused years ago. I know one of them but not the other.

January 6-1980, First job was Three Mile Island. Working instruments shop /as we called it then the Sugar Shack.

Times were great. Things have changed so much. So many of the Good HP's have passed. Not a lot of us left.

Mr. Troja,

It seems we are even as you have confused me a few times over the years that we have worked together. As to  my NukeWorker ID it seems at 62 I am the younger of the two Old HP / OLDHP, however I registered mine before the older OLDHP registered his. I would gladly change my ID to Retired HP but my NSS/IRM/ARC/CE/ABB/Numanco/ESG/PSESI/Bartlett/BNI/BWB/BHI retirement plan doesn't start until 45 years of service.

Actually, I realized it a couple of years ago when someone sent me a PM that was obviously not for me.  I checked the listing and redirected the sender!  It is too late now to even think about changing, because there are those who recognize the difference.

The confusion, then, is mutual. Let me know when that retirement kicks in. I am due the same from pretty much the same companies.

Back to the topic, which is already in progress...

The only thing worse than getting old is the alternative.

   Speaking of old, here is a current picture of the Navy Nuclear Power School at Mare Island that I attended at the beginning of my nuclear career. There was a sign over the entrance that said. "At this school, the smartest must work as hard as those who struggle to pass". Hyman Rickover.

We may have seen each other, I spent most of 73 there on the Spadefish then a couple of months on the Finback in 74. Not the nicest place to work Navy or Civilian.

Except in the winter with those sub-zero wind chills coming off the lake.  Otherwise, yeah, great place.
